Great little fine dining experience amongst the fast food surrounds. Even though the outdoor seating is at a strip mall, it still felt intimate. Food offerings were varied and enticing. Upscale bistro menu - selection included a number of vegetarian and gluten free options along...More

I had dinner at Nirvana. The place has no charm at all (at least for me), they have plain wood tables, no table cloth, no ornaments, a little bit dark. I ordered the salmon and it was really good, but service was average and somehow...More

Came here for lunch with a friend. They were really accommodating to my dietary preferences and our server was lovely. I just had a customized salad but I'm sure many dishes there are great.

We had a wonderful time at the wine bar Nirvana. We enjoyed the special "flight" of wine special on a Thursday night. There was a discounted flight. We were there for girls night out. It is a small location, with overall excellent service. Then we...More
